The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on May 10, 2017. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 The facility is used for the production of household trash cans and plastic storage totes. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials/ components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Hans-Mill from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export production (an estimated five percent of shipments). On its domestic sales, HansMill would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to stainless steel/plastic trash cans and plastic storage totes, trash cans and liners (duty rates—2 or 3%) for the foreign-status materials/components noted below. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The materials/components sourced from abroad include pre-cut/pre-treated stainless steel sheets, plastic lids, plastic bases, pulp packaging material and polypropylene resin material (duty rates range from free to 6.5%). The request indicates that stainless steel sheets are subject to an antidumping/ countervailing duty (AD/CVD) order. The FTZ Board’s regulations (15 CFR 400.14(e)) require that merchandise subject to AD/CVD orders be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the FTZ Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is July 12, 2017.
